Default GTX 470 with dedicated PhysX question

I just ordered a GTX 470 and I like to pair it with an old 8800GT for dedicated PhysX. I have an MSI X58 motherboard with 3 PCI-E slots for 3-way SLI. Obviously I'm going to put the GTX 470 in the first slot. Can I put the 8800GT in the 3rd slot or does it have to go in the second slot? By putting in the third slot it gives the fan on the GTX 470 more room to breathe.
